  1. no, because setting the WhattsApp parameter solved the issue. BUT, no way to check a "specific" usage for any device. No graph, no analysis 😕 Alain
  2. Port forwarding to allow access to the Solar Inverter is on my LAN from two year ago. No change on that. I will remove it... but "how can I test the WhattsApp connection" and that's the question I've begun the thread with. Alain
  3. Hmm... There is one port forwarding to allow access to the Solar Inverter. Alain
  4. a Pun --- Whatt'sAP un ??? 🙂 Correct, I'm pretty sure something is hindering WhattsApp in DUMA managed network. (I didn't had so many bad xp not even on Cell data while travelling in car !) But ... no idea at all about Whatt's hindering it. Alain
  5. Thanks Alex for your precious suggestions, I may try later. Short story: in case of low throughput network.... In WhattsApp -Settings -Data&Storage -down -"low Data" has to be "on" - That seems to have solved momentarily Video issues. - "low throughput network" that confirm: on my LAN something is wrong ('cause on the other networks the problem is really infrequent) How may I check What'sAppening ? No other device/App/program suffer, so far ! Alain
  6. May I optimize WhattsApp use of NET in DUMA? Reasons for asking? full story below 🙂 Ambience: I use WhattsApp on my V10 Honor phone for long videocall. My V10 connect to my LAN in WiFi. Really often some call suffer for "poor connection" "re-connect" stuck video, missing words in sounds.... .... a Bad Experience at least, while other calls start and end with fantastic sound and video experience without changing anything. LAN is mainly without traffic when I call via WhattsApp- say 0,1% or a little more - 81/21M ISP troughput. Assumption When I'm on Cell Network it happens very seldom to have Bad Experience. Cant remember a so long period of Bad Experience on R6400 but only after installing DUMA in June. TESTs During a Bad Experience if: - switching out from LAN (shutting down WiFi) = often I dont even lose connection and the call goes on better. - switching to ISP WiFi, = the calls goes better as well. - re-calling after closing the call = dont give a better experience, NEVER. Questions Something is damaging WhattsApp connection in my LAN ??? My LAN is managed by DUMA..... how DUMA can help me determine what'sApp-ening ? Is there some parameter I'm missing ? ( "WhattsApp" is not a registered game for use "filtering" - "Prioritization" Show SKYPE & games but no WhattsApp) Suppose I need some serious help here !!! Alain
  7. Problem determination continue on private chat. LAN settings are up to the book, now. I'll post any finding. Alain
  8. a) that's the ISP / Internet Service provider / At&T ( Whoever bring you the NET, on a public IP, is an ISP) b) I know / not a problem / dont invent / follow instruction / stay on safe side (basic noob rules) c) LAN NEVER USE PUBLIC IP (not knowing that, means means exposing LAN devices to Internet with no filter) Alain
  9. Hold on ----- what router is connected to NET (ISP) ????? Dont touch the MR110 right now. Answer before! (my assumption was - MR110 is the ISP - if so follow "per lettera" my instructions on XR500- dont touch the MR1100) Alain PS: cant read what is on the grey screen shots ( zoom = Ctrl + Mouse wheel . then pic again) Gosh ... dont touch MR1100 it's ISP on Follow "asis" my screenshots!!!! Use my EXACT configuration (it's LAN not Wan we are dealing with) Now I'm sure you have conflicting IP spaces _____ Please dont quote full message... that make a lot of real estate on screen !! 🙂
  10. Yes : NO DHCP on MR1100... ...I hope you know how to do it, otherwise ask. NOTE: for configuring XR500 you have to know what IP range MR1100 is working - mine is 192.168.1.x XR500 = Static IP y.y.y.3 - set gateway to y.y.y.1 (MR1100 IP address) Modify also DNS .... as suggested in pic! THENwhatever LAN IP you are using now, make the XR500 x.x.x.1 - I used and I'd suggest you that IP 'cause it's easier to write. As a rule: 127.x.x.x is LOCAL - 192.168.x.x - 10.x.x.x are LAN - All are these "Private IP" - (not transmitted over the NET) NOW- set DHCP range (in XR500) - x.x.x. 100-200. This is my config! I use static IP for most devices I want to know if on-line, or access directly from main PC - for that I saved 2-150 and 200-254 IP space (you may not have needs for Static IPs - so forget or ask more) Remember to save it on disk and ONLY AFTER remember to reboot the router. (so whatever happens you dont have to re-write it all) Hope it Help Alain
  11. Well your house config is the same as mine... minus the R6400 the "NET" router is from ISP - and that should not make any difference if you are able to configure it ... or not. All the important settings I've spoken of, are to be done on XR500. Alain
  12. MR1100 = No need for DHCP (equivalent for my NET router. - suppose y.y.y.1) XR500 = Static IP y.y.y.2 - set gateway to MR1100 y.y.y.1 THEN whatever LAN IP you are using make the XR500 x.x.x.1 - - set DHCP range (in XR500) - x.x.x. 100-200. Hopefully I'm clear enough, otherwise PM or mail I set you up Alain
  13. I agree ... and same mistake here. DUMA's engineer are may be not the problem. I suppose main fault is Netgear, but in Duma... they didn't abstract their software from the HDW/SFW Netgear was offering... .... to make a SHINY User's experience. Alain PS: as per usual: you get - what you get - after they get - your money
  14. As DDR-WRT has demonstrate you have no need for Netgear software. It's often easier to rewrite some basic code then to travel piggy-back without knowing where you are going and how you're supported. Alain PS: Good idea to give DDR-WRT a try
  15. Oh WOW! Thanks Alex, that clarify! but sure I'm deluded: I bought a "Duma's" router ... (to get rid of..) ... because ... ...I had over my head of the Netgear crappy software, more that I could stand!! (and now, probably, you as well 🙂 ) Alain PS: too many similarity to Netgear issues I've found reflected in DUMA but I didn't knew why , now I know.
  16. Well, usually that's not the best practice, if you are on the same LAN. ( or Different if both router manage a different portion of the LAN - you did not tell. (my routers are on: for NET - XR500 and DHCP for LAN - R6400 no DHCP as extender. Decide what is the DHCP router, then disable DHCP on the other. I would not be surprised if your game connection "lose its path" in the router's confusion. Alain PS: I know about frustration 😞
  17. Usual Log Format: YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS [ORIGINATOR] [FROM] "CODE" - TEXT 2019/07/31 23:23:24 [DUMA] [QOS] "7777" - applying for Zone Lan 2019/07/31 23:23:23 [ADMIN] [] "0001" - Login 2019/07/31 23:23:22 [Internet] [22.123.321.57] "0123" - Established connection Note: - Last event on top - International date format: 4 digit year - 2 digit month - International Time format (24h) - Better Coding of event - "code" to sort & filter fast - Better & clear description - Possibility to "save on disk" - because a reboot clear it !!!! Alain PS: your Log is driving me crazy - Time is at the end and not standard !!!!!
  18. Wow... Thanks Alex!! That explain with my PingPlotter kept fluttering sometime... at the beginning ....even If I have only my PC using the Net so far. (my ISP value are 83M/21M) And that's how to make it stop fluttering 🙂 (87% was my guess and it's the right value) Alain Note: having 5 x 4k video (manually set - not auto) Jayz2cent running in background make quite a sound 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkWQ0gDrqOCarmUKmppD7GQ
  19. If I may be so bold... I've found a nice utility that keep tab on what "my computer" is doing on the Net. But so far I didn't discover a way to get the same information from router. (overall traffic of the household) Alain
  20. DashBoard update I'm using Brave with no problem leaving Duma's tab always on, but may be not "active"... .... and no issue about Brave. Situation and everything is absolutely the same from my previous post. Few minutes ago ...First time after day's boot, I logged in the Duma's tab and ... TA-DA !!!! Now I've lost Device Manager, but got a nice colored flower instead! Alain PS: Yes I checked... all the tabs are working fine.. only dashboard acting strange. After the check I came back to dashboard ... no more flower but DevMan Tree!
  21. Yes, didnt change anything in Duma from may be three weeks. Alain
  22. No, you are correct. that screenshots were taken before understanding Brave's way. here the updated ... Qos is still missing in Dashboard (while it work in QOS). System still miss some. Overall I'm so happy to have found Brave. It does things ... that where not anymore possible in FF. I do a test leaving Duma tab in background in this windows. Alain Ps: any way to resize IMG pasted here in forum? (using a 4k they get quite huge!! - it's a 65" 🙂 )
